HMS Agincourt????

Please consider the Agincourt.  Best Ship ever, 7 turrets, 14x12" guns, largest ship when built.  Most turrets on a BB.  It was a great ship, and ought to be in the BB or BC line (mid level armour and slightly higher speed could be argued it would fit either potentially...)

 

Thanks!

Not until we have a British tree, sadly.

 

She wasn't really highly regarded, either. Agincourt had something of a poor armoring scheme, and a hull that length presents a fairly large target for enemy fire. A Queen Elizabeth would have shattered her with ease, as, likely, would a German Konig or Baden.

Not impress with 12 inch guns.

 

yes but their were 14 of them :)

 

Also, she was faster than the QE and Revenge classes.  Just a very aesthetically pleasing ship

12 inch guns at tier 5?????????

 

Its a Damage versus penetration/range deal. You will murder anything you can penetrate within your range, but those values are lower than your peers.

An ambusher, basically.

A little like the Aurora at Tier 3, it has 14 152mm guns, can absolutely murder anything that gets close, is reasonably armoured, but is as slow as a pig - gets torped all the time.

I'm guessing we'll see her as a Premium when the RN ships get added and will probably be viewed as the TOG II of WoWS, slow, not well armoured but a good gun. Or in this case 14 guns.  She was the physical embodyment of being a turret farm, oh and don't forget her 20 x 6 inch guns as her secondaries as well :p

 

But all that firepower and speed (22 knots) came at her being little better protected than a Lion class Battlecruiser, a 9 inch belt, it was just better laid out and she had more armour spread over her hull, but still a max belt of 9 inches, a heavy cruisers 8 inch guns could pen that at decent ranges and a BB's guns will rip through it.  As Mr Awesome said, she's an ambusher in this games terms. Get you at a range where she can hurt you and simply drown you with 12 inch shells, figuring you'll be knocked out by volume of fire before you can sink her.

Just want to echo the sentiment I posted in 2015 in respect to HMS Agincourt.  Now that the RN is here in force, this would be an awesome ship.  Only one of its kind built.  Would be really fun.

Why? In this case I've found the topic damn interesting. At least it was the OP who necro'ed it.
